The "stone" logo on the headstock means its probably late 70s. I haven't played any myself but as far as I understand if you want a Fernandes the stone logo ones are the ones to get.

Pawn shop mustang body and Venus neck maybe? He has played both as live guitars, maybe he just combined the parts he liked best? Although the headstock looks different than a Venus. (this is of course ...

I have three Japanese mustang copies, but only one that is playable.

The one that works is a red with yellowed comp stripes that for some reason isn't doing it at all for me. It plays just fine, b ...

Got the guitar today. The neck seems to be in an passable shape, any small pieces torn out in the fret-removal seems to be in areas that will be covered once the new frets are on. The fretboard is a b ...
